Solve puzzles, provide insights and develop creative solutions that impact the department and Firm. This will be achieved through one or more of the following activities:

  • Model Risk Management: Model Risk Management is responsible for the Firm’s model risk management framework and independently oversees model risk. As mandated by the Global Model Risk Management Policy, MRM establishes standards for the identification, development, validation and use of models, independently validates and certifies the Firm’s models, and reports and monitors model risk in adherence to the Firm’s risk appetite.
  • Risk Analytics: Risk Analytics develops market risk analytics, credit risk analytics, operational risk analytics and scenario analytics models providing quantitative analysis on the Firm's risk exposures. By developing mathematical and statistical models with risk overlays, Risk Analytics calculates the risks associated with specified sets of financial positions and day-to-day operations.
